Education For Schools
Street Smart 2014
Street Smart High is an annual road safety education event hosted by RAA in conjunction with Event Partner the Motor Accident Commission. Street Smart High aims to reduce the state's shocking youth road toll. Road crashes are one of the leading causes of death for young people under the age of 25, and Street Smart High aims to demonstrate the devastating reality of road trauma to South Australian high school students.
Street Smart High 2014
Due to popular demand, Street Smart High was held across two days in 2014, on Wednesday 26 March and Thursday 27 March. This meant more students and schools were able to attend the event, held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. The program was the same on each day, giving schools the chance to choose the day that was most suitable for them.
Street Smart High will be held again in 2015. Please visit the website in October/November once dates have been confirmed. To be notified when registrations open, please join our mailing list. Send your name, school and email address to Sarah Grantham via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: Street Smart High is free to attend.
